Freedom Mobile - "Big GIG" US Roaming

Just returned from US trip using "Big Gig". Disappointed with Freedom's product as:
  • Their US partner, ATT, downgrades service to 3G from 4G immediately on connection
  • Data usage frequently interrupted by request for confirmation re data usage
  • Service became sporadically unavailable more frequently in second week
  • Service was sloooow!
Did I hear that US networks don't like "hot spotting"?
Will explore other options prior to next trip - local PAYG?
